Penalties For DWI In New York

DWI is one of the most common criminal charges. However, the people being charged with this crime are not what most would consider criminals. They are normal people with good jobs and families. They do not typically have criminal records.

If you have been charged with DWI, you want to make certain that you are treated like a normal person, not a criminal. That is why you need an experienced attorney on your side. At The Law Office of Kelley M. Enderley, PC, we strive to help you avoid the penalties for DWI in New York.

What Are The Penalties For Drunk Driving?

The biggest concern for most people charged with drunk driving is driver's license suspension. While it is true that driving is a privilege, it is also a necessity for most people in Poughkeepsie and the surrounding area. You need to drive to get around. We will do everything we can to prevent or minimize the duration of driver's license suspension.

Underage drivers may face even greater driver's license penalties than adults. A complex process is required for these drivers to regain their driving privileges.

In some cases, the penalties may be much more serious, particularly if you are charged with felony DWI under Leandra's Law because you had a child in your car, or because of some other escalating factor. Incarceration is a possibility in some drunk driving cases. Our goal is to keep you away from jail or prison, and to keep you on the road if possible.

Ignition Interlock Device

One issue to be aware of is the ignition interlock device, which may need to be installed on all of your cars if your driving privileges are not taken away, or if they are restored. This comes at a cost to you. You will pay for rental, installation and maintenance. A lawyer will help you understand your options and obligations.
